Although I don’t own one I am a huge fan of the daystate wolverine. A fitting name for such rifle.

I don't know about the best, but a few candidates for dumbest:

Benjamin anything SBD.  We all know what our first thought is

Diana Stormrider.  Stormrider??!!  Where the heck did that come from????

Benjamin Rogue was actually a cool name when it applied to potentially powerful midbore. 
I kind of like Sumatra and Recluse, can't say why.
Air Wolf is a sold winner. Impact is pretty good too.

I think I'll have to go Bulldog. Great marketing and it totally fits the product. A bullpup that's just butt-ugly (beauty is in the eye of the beholder)  A rugged looking, all business, hunting machine. The bulldog. Just the name, concept, and appeal almost had me buying one. Glad I didn't though because the range is more limited than I would have liked.

Always liked the " SCORPION " name that BSA used ... in terms of Sting, there rifles are very very accurate and worthy of such a name.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
